[laughter] and these pictures are for you, and we wish you the best as you work for that common good mr. cortez spoke about in the invocation and as you so eloquently talked about in your description of the american character tod
at in my opinion the disingenuousness of the administration, they met with the nra, as you know, joe biden did and the nra brought up the fact that prosecutions for gun crimes and prosecutions for people who fill out -- lie on their registration forms or gun forms are down under this administration and the vice president responded we don't have time to devote to see whether people fill out a form right. well, wait a minute. they're asking for more forms and saying they don't have the time to fill out -- to check -- are they serious about this or is this just about politics? >> well, first of all, let's be clear about why there has been fewerenforcements, the head of the atf said there is a failure to confirm because the nra has objected and they have objected to reasonable pragmatic solutions and that's what this is all about. this is not about taking people's guns away. it's about a narrow set of proposals that will enable us to help enforce the existing gun laws, the ban on assault weapons and a ban on high-capacity magazines and even a ban on armor piercing bullets. are overwhelmingly s

obama, speaker boehner? guest: mitch mcconnell, joe biden. michelle obama is rolling her eyes or making a fence at the inaugural luncheon yesterday when obama and boehner talked behind her. lost betweenlove the two. now at this point you have but the president and boehner committing not to talk to each other about the next big spending fight. not a good sign. host: what will second obama term mean for the court? guest: a lot of big issues, and i suppose there is the possibility of another supreme court appointment, which is always a moment to read-tod litigate social issues. we will look at potentially historic rulings on affirmative action, economic issues, gay marriage, and if he goes ahead on climate change, i do not know if it will get the court, but that will be with just in extreme. i think this -- despite the fact that the president and chief justice managed twice to get through the oath of office without any mistakes of the last couple of days, you are still going to see a huge gulf between the conservative majority of the supreme court and this white house, particularly under t
president joe biden may be laying groundwork for a presidential campaign. he met with the national committee at a private reception and held events at his residence over the weekend, and invited the hampshire's governor to the swearing in and drop down -- dropped by an iowa and our robot. according to cnn, there are in his work a whole lot of reasons why he would not run but says he is now focused on helping president obama. secretary of state hillary clinton remains a heavy favorite if she decides to run for the high office. in 40 minutes, secretary clinton will be giving testimony on the assault on the eve of the mission in benghazi, libya. that attack killed ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans. secretary clinton is the sole witness today at back-to-back hearings before the senate and house foreign policy committee. here live coverage of the senate hearing at 9:00 a.m. eastern and a house hearing at 2:00 p.m. eastern here on c-span radio or watched the hearings on c-span 3. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. >> what is the best training for a polic
by then-senator joe biden, was a watershed moment in our history. in the years since, we have come together in a bipartisan way to re-authorize and expand the reach of this law. now we must do it again. the last congress had the opportunity to take this action. the senate passed a strong bill with a bipartisan vote of 68-31. 68-31. yet house republicans refused to bring the senate's bipartisan bill to the floor, leaving millions without a critical line of defense against domestic violence. this congress has a chance to correct the mistake without further delay. today with 158 co-sponsors and counting, that's in the house, including every woman democrat in the house, democrats are re-introducing the re-authorization of the violence against women act which would expand protections to lgbt, immigrants and native americans. this has bipartisan support in the senate, including key women senators. it is bipartisan. and time for the house republicans to join suit and join the senate in a bipartisan backing of this measure. failure to enact this bill would deprive women and children of vit
